3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home pour is pitch black with a big brown head and great lacing. Big coffee, roasty, earthy, light marshmallows, graham crackers, light grass, somewhat lactic, and bready aroma. Taste is big coffee, dark cocoa, earthy, toasted bread, light vanilla, burnt caramel, and figs with a medium bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Well constructed stout and a very good use of coffee.

Pours black with thin tan head. Nose off deep chocolate malt. Good body. Taste is burnt coffee and chocolate. Little disappointed in the lack of coffee but it’s a good overall stout.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a laced toffee-tan head. Rich, oaty breakfast imperial snappiness but wheezes of coffee throughout. Silky booziness on the initial taste, up front without being upsetting to the palate. Tangs of coffee throughout, but a middle richness stirs in a bit more malty choc and creaminess. This is a bit tantalising and decadent, but the finish is a coarse bitterness and more drips of over roasted coffee on the finish. Would prefer it softer, but still fairly decent.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft from BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush opening night on 29 November 2013. Poured black with a dense tan head and good lacing. Aroma of grassy hop, ash, Oxo and possibly mothballs(?). Where the aroma was not super enticing, the mouth feel was absolutely perfect; full and velvety. Massive flavours of dark fruit, roast malt and cinnamon. Finish was espresso, liquorice, port, burnt grain and molasses. Super complex flavours, shame slightly about some odd aromas, but overall this was a spectacular beer.

On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto. Black, tan head. Nose is licorice, coffee, vanilla, wood. Flavour is vanilla in the front coffee in the back. Thick dusty palate. Great stuff, love the vanilla aspect especially. EDIT: Unbeknownst while rating, this is apparently my 500th Canadian beer. How cool is that?
